This is a city where new trends are started, and new sounds break into the mainstream masses. The rap game has housed some of the biggest Atlanta born artists and continues to keep adding ‘greatness to the line-up. Rapper / songwriter SupaStarDaGreat is amongst those names of people who are making monumental milestones.
Hailing from East Atlanta, Georgia the rapper originally started out making beats before going full throttle into the rap game as a music artist. While he was still in high school, he was already directing and shooting his own music videos which evolved into completing successful singles, albums, connections and overall being respected in the city for his craft.
SupaStarDaGreat managed to hit a major peak in his career after a press run on Atlanta’s notorious radio station Streetz 94.5 FM. From there he went on to perform at several stages, but most recently had a stand-out show at the 2022 Revolt Summit where he performed in front of Hip Hop greats DJ Drama, Atl Jacob, and Rhapsody. Not slowing down anytime soon the artist is planning to drop more music at the top of the year including the visual to his new hit single ‘Creed’ out now on all platforms.
